Default Photos of "Fountain of Youth"

Hoping someone may be able to help me out. Back in the early 90's late 80's there was big yellow "Fountain" Speed boat..named "Fountain of Youth". Someone HAS to remember that boat...

I remember getting a ride on that boat years ago, back when there was no speed limit!

It was docked over in Paugus Bay.

Well, anyway, the reason I ask is, someone on a Fountain Powerboats Forum wanted to see a photo of it.

If I remember, the boat was in Florida in the winter

thanks!

Back in the early 90's my neighbor at Jonathan's Landing on Long Island had a yellow Fountain called "Cash Flow", is that the one you're thinking of? I remember Fountain of Youth as well, that one was red if I recall correctly? Used to be docked just outside of the Weirs Channel? I came across Cash Flow in Fort Lauderdale about two years ago funny enough, same paint job and everything.

I remember "Cash Flow". We use to call it "Crash Flow", lol. It was like something from outer space compared to the typical islander boats at Harilla landing. It was Very yellow!

I, too, remember the yellow "Fountain of Youth". I believe it was docked in the Weirs Channel near the Pier 93 (?) condominium complex. It was there for years so SOMEbody must be able to offer more information!

YUP!!! That was him! I remember he had a C+S on his house..he used to call him and his wife "Cream and Sugar". I remember that he had to talk by holding his thumb to his windpipe. He was a super great guy. His place was on Paugus Bay, along the main road...I don't remember the name of the complex, but it was not far down the road...

Default Fountain of Youth

I took this photo and meant to post.....I believe this was taken sometime around 1995 and standing from the shoreline, it seemed this guy was pretty proud of his craft!

Cash Flow was owned by my cousin late 1980s/early 1990s. He owned a place in Jonathan's Landing. I haven't seen him for a while, but I'll find out what happened to the boat the next time I see him.

If it was your cousin Vinny it would be the Fountain of Yoots

Sorry, it was too easy

CASH FLOW -- another great pic of Frank's 42' Executioner. This is from when he was at Jonathan's Landing in the late 80's & early 90's. This picture was taken from Frank's Helicopter. Name:  IMG_0534.jpg
